2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very similar to other bitters in its style. Has a familiar flat, wateriness. This one has a bit more malts than usual and smells of dirt.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in November 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby in colour with a thin creamy off white head. Damp earth and mouldy leaves in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and superb lacing throughout. Pale malts deliver a robust maltloaf base with strong notes of roasted malted grain. Dusty hop resins give a short bitter aftertaste. Dry flavours of wood smoke, leather and walnuts continue into the oak cask finish. A really good session ale with lots of complexity, well recommended.
